Abstract

What does it take to be a 'good man'? Men throughout the world are frequently subjected to negative representation. In the South African context this is no different, say SHARLENE SWARTZ, JEREMIAH CHIKOVORE and LINDA RICHTER, who are embarking on a study focusing on men's morality and considering how 'being good' is in fact an asset (or 'capital').
